Book Awards Reading Challenge II

Through Joy’s Blog, I discovered a link to the Book Award Reading Challenge blog. They are getting ready to start a 10 award winning book challenge over 10 months (August 1, 2008 through June 1, 2009). There are a few simple rules, the most significant being that the books qualifying for the challenge must come from 5 different awards. There is a long list of eligible book awards to choose from, so it shouldn’t be hard to find 10 coming from at least 5 of those. I need to look through those award listings and come up with my 5. I’m hoping that this will be a good way to get through some of my TBRs. I need a push to read some of these and hopefully that will work out. I’ll post my selections by the end of the week.

I’ve not really participated in a formal challenge like this and I was excited to sign up. It’s limited to 100 participants. I was #38. If you would like to join with me, sign up and then let me know.

  1. Okay. I could SWEAR that I commented on this last night….
    I wanted to say that I’m going to look into this and see if I think I can fit it into my reading schedule and also that you should take notes on what works and what doesn’t for our very own challenge.

  2. We are on the very same wave length. I was looking at that site and wondering if we couldn’t do the same type of thing – if we were so inclined. For this challenge I’m going to pick books that will satisfy the LT challenge as well (The Confederacy of Dunces comes to mind). I don’t want to overload myself or have to buy a bunch of new books. I need to focus on making a dent into my TBR in a major, major way.
